My cousin Alex is interning this summer with the new booking service, "1uOitR8" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Vimbly. It's like Opentable but instead of restaurant reservations, you can browse, compare pricing, and book activities in NYC (and quite a few other metropolitan areas).
There are thousands of instantly bookable activities like martial arts and dance classes, wine tastings, harbor cruises, and Broadway shows, just to name a few. The activities range from luxurious date ideas for couples, to free fitness classes for people looking to save a few bucks.
What really struck me as interesting for my city mamas is the "1uOitR8" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">kids activities. Chess? Fencing? Trampoline class? JAPANESE ANIME CHARACTER DRAWING?! The list of children's activities looks so fun I want to get in on them myself!
Check it out and please let us know what you think!
